Re: 2017 Aftermarket DCFC

I’ve said this before: It’s criminal to offer a Bolt EV for sale without a DCFC charge port, especially without an affirmative declaration that the DCFC charging port is MISSING! If it were me I would sue GM and the prior owner for rescission and/or the damages you must incur to purchase another Bol...

Re: free Sirius XM

Sorry you had such a terrible time with SXM customer service, and my experience with them is they are notoriously terrible! I try to not call in as much as possible. But I do enjoy their satellite radio channels (and now they own Pandora as well, which I have used for many years as well). My history...

Re: Winter performance?

If you signup for the Sirius/XM 3 month free trial, your range in winter go up, too! :D I couldn't resist the joke after reading your experiences with SXM. I LOVE my 2019 Bolt EV after a 3 year lease of my 2017 Bolt EV after my 3 year lease of a 2014 Volt, but weather here in Los Angeles does not pr...

Re: Battery Degradation 2020 Bolt Relative to 2017 Bolt EV

This may be too complicated for me.

How often do you charge?

I plug in every time I return home.

Re: Battery Degradation 2020 Bolt Relative to 2017 Bolt EV

Paul: once again, a great report!

Once we get our new batteries (are we getting new batteries or are only our battery cells being replaced?) what measurements can we make when new so that we can measure degradation over time?

Re: USB ports

Purchase one of those cigarette lighter accessories that provides higher capacity USB ports and plug it in under the front dash. That’s what I did, in addition to making Apple Carplay wireless, so I could charge my iPhone while running the Uber Driver app and Waze at the same time. Thanks to SparkE ...

The best I have been able to achieve at EA is 50KWh dowload.

Yes we all wish we could have todays features on yesterday’s vehicles!

Re: Buyback Process

I'm still waiting. https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/repurchase-timeline-survey.41524/ was started and I was helpfully added to the table w/o asking. TIL that WendyB in So Cal started 2 days after me and is already done. I'm in Nor Cal. Don't know if it's just by luck or because of her newer vehicl...

Re: Chevrolet/GM update on new battery software package

Am I mssing something? Is this any different than simply setting "Hilltop reserve" (for older Bolts) or setting max SoC to 80% on newer Bolts? Well, I *suppose* that it does have some diagnostic features that will warn if it detects bad cell(s) ... At a minimum, it eliminates your ability...
